Re: Praying versus acting
I think in the future it will be recognized that we exist in both worlds with the materialists simply denying the other world exists. The reconciliation will come with a greater understanding of this thing called consciousness. When we understand better exactly what consciousness is.. It is inevitable, IMO. In finally getting a better grasp on this thing, this will be a world view changing deal. And materialism will be relegated to the flat earther category.
